French Toast

Ayindé and Zoë are longtime vegans, but they have something else in common: neither has ever dated another vegan. After comparing notes, they realized the need for a manifesto to help vegans and omnivores navigate their cross-cuisine love life. The book shares tips—both culinary and romantic—for vegans who want to satisfy the appetites of their omnivorous counterpart, and for non-vegans who want to impress their plant-based partners.



The authors’ personal experiences and advice on matters romantic and sexual can be irreverent, but always on the mark for people needing relationship solutions, both romantic and culinary. Loaded with humorous anecdotes and seductive full-color food photographs, The Lusty Vegan provides delicious recipes and lots of fun along the way.
